Pair These Ingredients For Maximum Benefits
Some skincare ingredients are good on their own, but why get good results when you can get great ones with only one simple twist? Yep, we are talking about mixing powerful ingredients. These pairs will do wonders for your skin when applied together.
1 || Vitamin C + E For A healthy-Looking Complexion
You’ll find many products that pair these two, why? simply because they are better absorbed together. Vitamin C will promote collagen production and brighten the skin while Vitamin E prevents free radicals damage and prevents the oxidation of vitamin C giving you a very healthy and great-looking complexion.
2 || Saliclyic Acid + Niacinamide For Reducing Breakouts
If your skin is prone to breakouts and blemishes, then this duo is the answer. This duo helps unclog pores, control oil production, reduce inflammation and brighten the skin. But because of the acidic pH of salicylic acid, it can be a bit drying, and here’s where niacinamide’s neutral pH power comes in balancing things out.
3 || Hyaluronic Acid + Ceramides For Moisturizing
The hydration super powerful mix! Ceramides (the thick oil-based emollient) protect the skin barrier and retain moisture levels while hyaluronic acid (the lightweight water-soluble) attracts water hydrating the skin directly. They are both great hydrators.
4 || Glycerin + Hyaluronic Acid For Hydrating
This duo will keep your skin hydrated for as long as possible. Hyaluronic acid deeply hydrates the skin and glycerin helps to attract water to hydrate the skin and then retain the moisture. This results in reduced fine lines, a smoother and plumper skin.
5 || Retinoids + Benzoyl Peroxide For Treating Acne
We are not going to talk about how amazing retinoid is on its own. Let’s talk about how it can get super beneficial in fighting breakouts when paired with benzoyl peroxide. Retinoid exfoliates the skin and reduces oil production while benzoyl peroxide minimizes bacterial growth which works wonders in reducing acne. But make sure to buy stable prescription products that combine a retinoid and benzoyl peroxide and avoid mixing these two ingredients on your own.
6 || Glycolic Acid + Retinoids For Reducing Discoloration & Fine Lines
The highly efficacious ingredients on their own can do wonders in fading discoloration and reducing fine lines when used together. Glycolic acid helps in exfoliation and Retinoid reduces oil and boosts collagen production. Just make sure to go easy, as both ingredients can be irritating. Don’t use them at the same exact time and start by incorporating them once a week each, then alternate them nightly if your skin can tolerate it.
7 || Tiger Grass + Aloe Vera For Calming The Skin
Tiger grass is known for its ability to correct skin color and reduce inflammation. And aloe vera has similar benefits of calming and healing irritated skin, so it makes all sense to pair them together to get the most out of both ingredients.
